The Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR (NYSEARCA:XLY), the largest exchange-traded fund dedicated to the consumer discretionary sector, was up nearly 18% year-to-date at the start of June 11, putting it nearly 240 basis points ahead of the S&P 500.Consumer discretionary is the fourth-largest sector weight in the S&P 500. The primary reason why traditional, cap-weighted consumer cyclical ETFs like XLY are thriving this year is Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). That stock is up almost 24% year-to-date and is carrying many consumer cyclical funds because it is by far the largest holding in those ETFs.For example, XLY allocates 24.57% of its weight to shares of Amazon, more than double the weight assigned to the fund's second-largest component.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSure, some of the best ETFs in the consumer cyclical space have large weights to Amazon. That is to be expected. On the other hand, some of the best ETFs offering exposure to this sector have surprisingly small weights to Amazon, offering investors unique and potentially rewarding approaches to consumer-related stocks. * 10 Stocks to Buy That Wall Street Expects to Soar for the Rest of 2019 Here are some of the best ETFs for exposure to the consumer discretionary to consider over the next few months. Fidelity MSCI Consumer Discretionary ETF (FDIS)Expense Ratio: 0.084%, or $8.40 annually per $10,000 investedThe Fidelity MSCI Consumer Discretionary ETF (NYSEARCA:FDIS) is the least expensive consumer discretionary fund on the market today. Adding to the case for this being one of the best ETFs for investors to consider in this sector is that Fidelity clients can trade FDIS commission-free, which adds to their cost savings.Like the aforementioned XLY, FDIS is a cap-weighted fund, so it has a massive weight to Amazon, 25.48% to be precise. FDIS is also home to Home Depot (NYSE:HD), McDonald's (NYSE:MDC), Nike (NYSE:NKE) and Disney (NYSE:DIS) -- four of the Dow Jones stocks that are up at least 10% this year.Investors considering FDIS right now should be advised that the consumer discretionary sector has a tendency to struggle in the summer months, but long-term investors that can catch a pullback in FDIS could be rewarded because consumer cyclical stocks usually bounce back in the latter stages of the third quarter and soar in the last three months of the year. Amplify International Online Retail ETF (XBUY)Expense Ratio: 0.69%The Amplify Online International Retail ETF (NYSEARCA:XBUY) debuted earlier this year as the international counterpart to the popular Amplify Online Retail ETF (NASDAQ:IBUY). Online retail and e-commerce are themes dominated by Amazon in the U.S., but these themes are global, making XBUY one of the best ETFs to consider in this space.XBUY holds 46 stocks and tracks the EQM International Ecommerce Index. That benchmark "seeks to measure the performance of equity securities issued by non-U.S. companies that derive at least 90% of their revenue from online business transactions or e-commerce platforms," according to Amplify.XBUY's holdings include traditional retailers, online travel providers and marketplace companies, such as Shopify (NYSE:SHOP). XBUY is one of the best ETFs for tactical investors seeking ex-U.S. exposure because online shopping has significant tailwinds. * 7 U.S. Stocks to Buy With Limited Trade War Exposure "Ecommerce represented a growing share of the retail market in 2018, taking a 14.3% share of total retail sales last year, up from 12.9% in 2017 and 11.6% in 2016," notes Digital Commerce 360. "More significant is that ecommerce sales represented more than half, or 51.9%, of all retail sales growth. This is the largest share of growth for purchases made online since 2008, when ecommerce accounted for 63.8% of all sales growth." ProShares Online Retail ETF (ONLN)Expense Ratio: 0.58%The ProShares Online Retail ETF (NYSEARCA:ONLN) is one of the best ETFs for investors looking for umbrella exposure to the biggest names in online retail. Case and point: ONLN allocates over 40% of its combined weight to Amazon and Alibaba (NYSE:BABA). ONLN is just 11 months old, but the fund is already displaying the potency of dedicated online retail investments as it is up nearly 23% year-to-date.While ONLN is essentially a bet on two stocks due to the largest weights assigned to Amazon and Alibaba, there is no denying the favorable fundamental data that underpins this fund, making it one of the best ETFs in this market niche."With nearly all of the constituents of the ProShares Online Retail index reporting, sales growth came in at nearly 20% and earnings growth came in at nearly 55%," according to ProShares.As ONLN's performance indicates, investors should embrace purity when it comes to online retailers."Some retail observers note the increased online presence of legacy bricks-and-mortar retailers as evidence that the online/brick and mortar bifurcation of the retail universe is becoming less relevant. However, this ignores the evidence that expanding the online businesses of legacy bricks-and-mortar players isn't benefiting their bottom lines. In the first quarter, Walmart's online sales grew 37%; however, Walmart's first quarter earnings shrank nearly 1%," according to ProShares.As of this writing, Todd Shriber did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

It's amazing what a couple of good trading days can do for a lousy stock market. When I thought about doing an article about stocks to buy hitting 52-week lows recently, a quick search of companies with a market cap of $2 billion or more revealed a total of 124 hitting 52-week lows.Fast forward three days later and there's only 22 stocks hitting 52-week lows according to Finviz.com.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNow, I'm as game as the next person when it comes to picking possible stocks to buy, but given I'm attempting to choose one stock from seven different sectors, 22's not going to cut it. * 7 S&P 500 Dividend Stocks to Buy at Least Yielding 3% Therefore, to ensure I've got better options from as many sectors as possible, I've relaxed the qualifier to those companies trading within 5% of a stock's 52-week low. By doing so, I get a total of 120 stocks with a least one choice from eight different sectors, making the options a lot more palatable. Methanex (MEOH)As I write this, Methanex (NASDAQ:MEOH) is trading within seven cents of its 52-week low of $41.39, which is more than half its 52-week high of $83.23. Methanex is one of the world's largest producers of methanol which its customers to use to make everything from adhesives to windshield washer fluid. It also sells methanol to oil refiners who turn it into a high-octane fuel. Based in Vancouver, B.C., the company expects strong demand for methanol over the next four years with a growing piece of its business going to companies converting methanol to olefins which can then be turned into polyolefins, which are used to make all kinds of plastics. In late April, Raymond James analyst Steve Hansen suggested to clients that they consider Methanex stock because of its steep decline in price. Hansen's got an $80 price target and an outperform rating on it. "We continue to recommend that investors accumulate MEOH shares based upon our constructive view on improving methanol fundamentals, the company's robust associated free cash flow profile, and the stock's attractive valuation," Hansen stated.Trading at a level it hasn't seen since June 2017, if the economy holds, MEOH is a bargain. Wolverine World Wide (WWW) Source: Brubastos via Flickr (modified)Wolverine World Wide (NYSE:WWW) is trading within 38 cents of its 52-week low of $27.64, which is 31% below its 52-week high of $39.77. Wolverine, known for footwear brands such as Keds, Hush Puppies, Skechers, Sperry, and many more, is having a tough time dealing with tariffs on the Chinese shoes it imports. It recently asked the Trump government to reconsider increasing these tariffs as it would mean American households would be paying as much as a 100% duty on shoes imported from China. "While U.S. tariffs on all consumer goods average just 1.9 percent, they average 11.3 percent for footwear and reach rates as high as 67.5 percent. Adding a 25 percent tax increase on top of these tariffs would mean some working American families could pay a nearly 100 percent duty on their shoes," the letter stated. * 5 Healthcare Stocks to Pick Up From the Wreckage While the near term doesn't look good for the Michigan company, it still anticipates revenue growth in the low-to-mid-single digits in 2019. Despite all the tariff troubles, it estimates adjusted earnings per share will be at least $2.20, which means it is currently trading at less than 13 times its forward earnings. By comparison, Nike (NYSE:NKE) trades at almost 27 times its forward earnings. Simon Property Group (SPG)Source: m01229 via Flickr (Modified)Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG) is trading within 2% of its 52-week low of $159.69, which is 17% below its 52-week high of $191.41.Recently, a group by the name of Peer & Peri LLC made a mini-tender offer to purchase up to 20,000 of the mall owner's shares at a 21% discount to the $178.11 share price at the commencement of the offer on May 6. Down 8% since the offer was disclosed, it expired on June 6 at 5 p.m. Although Simon put out a statement recommending shareholders reject the below-market mini-tender offer, these things are intended to catch investors off guard, prompting them to mistakenly sell their shares at a discount. If you Google "Peer & Peri LLC," you will see that it happens to a lot of reputable companies. I'm not sure why it's allowed to happen, but it is. Forbes contributor Sanford Stein, who's spent four decades studying retail, recently made a great observation about Simon."David Simon knows this stuff. That's why he is CEO of the largest mall developer in the country, with over 200 of the best remaining malls. It's also quite likely that when the 1,300 or so malls that exist today are reduced to 500 or 600, in say the next decade, Simon Property Group will still own and manage the best ones," Stein wrote May 14. I like the idea of getting SPG stock at $140 a share, but I wouldn't recommend you try to do it the Peer & Peri LLC way. CVS Health (CVS)Source: Mike Mozart via FlickrCVS Health (NYSE:CVS) is trading within 5% of its 52-week low of $51.72, which is 37% below its 52-week high of $82.15. CVS held its annual investor day June 4; a day in which CEO Larry Merlo spent most of his time assuring shareholders that its acquisition of Aetna would pay dividends in the long run despite the apparent near-term difficulties. Merlo sees the company generating double-digit sales growth in 2022 once the $70-billion purchase is fully integrated. CVS is building a vertically integrated health business that provides everything from insurance, prescription drug benefits, healthcare services, and retail drugstores. It expects to find at least $300 million in synergies in 2019 and $800 million in 2020. "Keep in mind we're in the early innings of our transformational journey," Merlo told investors. "This will be a multi-year journey with benefits building over time as we continue to build and refine new programs to better serve the needs of our stakeholders."I'm normally not a fan of large acquisitions, but given how incredibly dysfunctional the U.S. healthcare sector is, anything that reduces the cost while maintaining profitability, is bound to do well in the long run. * 7 Stocks to Buy That Don't Care About Tariffs Take advantage of the uncertainty to get a well-run company at a very reasonable price. Pentair (PNR)Source: HereStanding via Flickr (Modified)Pentair (NYSE:PNR) is trading within 3% of its 52-week low of $34.72, which is 25% below its 52-week high of $46.00.Pentair became a pure-play water company in April 2018 when it spun-off nVent Electric (NYSE:NVT), its electrical connection and solution company. As a result, Pentair now has three water-related businesses only: aquatic systems, filtration solutions, and flow technologies. Given the importance of water in our world, the hiving off of its electrical business allows Pentair to focus entirely on water technology.Although the company's first-quarter core revenues were down 4% over the same time last year and its adjusted earnings per share fell 12%, it still expects to report adjusted EPS of at least $2.30 in 2019, which means it's currently trading at less than 11 times its 2019 earnings. Furthermore, with three operating segments generating almost identical revenues, it's got downside protection built right into its business model. Should a recession come to pass, it won't be overly reliant on a single segment for sales. It's not a sexy business, but it's got an excellent 2.9% dividend yield to get paid until its growth initiatives take hold. Urban Outfitters (URBN)Source: Shutterstock Urban Outfitters (NASDAQ:URBN) is trading within 4% of its 52-week low of $22.19, which is 58% below its 52-week high of $52.50.Urban Outfitters has several issues that have brought its stock to its news in the past year. They include deteriorating business trends, difficult same-store sales comparisons, product issues at its Urban Outfitters brand, including a slowdown in women's apparel, and finally, a serious concern about tariffs on Chinese imports. That said, it continues to be one of the most financially sound retailers that's publicly traded. It finished the first quarter (April 30 quarter end) with no debt, $520 million in cash, and $447 million in free cash flow. Free cash flow yield is one of the metrics I use for non-financials to evaluate the relative value of a stock. In the case of URBN, it has an FCF yield of 23% based on an enterprise value of $1.94 billion. * 7 S&P 500 Dividend Stocks to Buy at Least Yielding 3% As long as it continues to deliver positive same-store sales growth, $23 ought to appear very cheap to investors. Citrix (CTXS)Source: Shutterstock Citrix Systems (NASDAQ:CTXS) is trading within 3% of its 52-week low of $93.12, which is 20% below its 52-week high of $116.82.Citrix, known for its on-premise software for making companies more productive, is moving to the cloud and subscription-based software offerings. The transformation is aimed at creating a platform that provides large enterprises with a hybrid cloud that can grow and adapt based on their needs. Change is always tricky, and while the transformation is expected to take several years, CEO David Henshall insists that it's the right thing to do for customers, employees, and shareholders. Citrix's Intelligent Workspace is a platform for company applications that operate intelligently to improve productivity. The company's goal is to provide enough productivity improvements through its platform to give users back one day of their work week lost to moving between applications. If you look at its revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, you'll see that Citrix's subscription revenues increased by 37% over a year earlier accounting for 19.7% of its overall revenue, 490 basis points higher than a year earlier. As it invests in research and development for the Intelligent Workspace, its subscription revenues will continue to grow at a double-digit pace. Down from its all-time high of $116.82, if it drops below $90, you're getting a terrific deal. At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU) reports earnings on Wednesday, June 12. LULU stock has developed a reputation for significant movements following earnings reports. Hence, the Vancouver-based apparel maker will probably face high expectations going into the report. Still, while I see LULU as a long-term winner, the report may not bring the positive catalyst that many expect.Source: Shutterstock Wall Street forecasts the company will earn 71 cents per share in its first quarter. If this holds, that will represent a 27% increase from the same quarter last year when LULU reported 55 cents per share in profit. Analysts also predict revenues of $757 million for the quarter. This would be a 16.2% increase from year-ago levels of $649.71 million.Given its earnings history, holders of LULU stock may expect a little more. LULU has beat earnings for the last eight quarters and sales forecasts in the previous 13 reports. Moreover, Wall Street predicts earnings growth of 20.6% for the current year and 17.9% the next.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAlso, for the last five quarters, the LULU stock price has moved by more than 10% (in one direction or the other) following the report. All of these factors should bring high expectations. * 10 Stocks to Buy That Could Be Takeover Targets The company's signature yoga pants have put the company on the map. However, it has quickly emerged as a full-fledged athletic brand. They will expand into athletic shoes as well as personal care products. Lululemon even has added a line of menswear. They have also begun to test a loyalty program that will compare to Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime membership. Report May Not Bolster LULU StockSince their specialty remains women's yoga pants, it remains unclear how successful these other lines will become. While the sale of menswear should increase sales, it remains unclear how much of a following a maker of women's yoga pants will attract in this market. However, this places the company in more direct competition with Nike (NYSE:NKE), Under Armour (NYSE:UA, NYSE:UAA) and Adidas (OTCMKTS:ADDYY).One other factor will heighten expectations further. In the previous quarter, Lululemon stock spiked higher by over 14% the day after its March earnings report. Many traders will inevitably buy LULU in hopes of a repeat performance. While that could happen, I would caution against buying for that reason. Following the December report, LULU stock fell by more than 13% despite an earnings beat.Moreover, LULU trades at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 47.3. It also trades close to 31.2 times earnings on a forward basis. Given the expected profit growth rate and the likelihood of beating estimates, I do not see LULU as significantly overvalued. However, I believe the market has priced in the positives of this stock.I stated in a recent article that LULU stock would probably follow overall market trends. Since I reported that on April 10, LULU has fallen by slightly more than 1%. In comparison, the S&P 500 has fallen by a little more than 2% as of the time of this writing. Hence, that has largely held so far. Furthermore, trends do not appear favorable with the overall economy facing trade wars and slowing growth. While earnings could inspire a significant move in the stock, I believe it will continue to follow overall market trends closely. * 7 Reasons Stock Buybacks Should Be Illegal Final Thoughts on LULU StockGiven the history of LULU stock, the earnings report should spark a reaction, though not necessarily a positive one. Lululemon stock consistently beats estimates. The company has also gone into business lines that should place them into deeper competition with firms such as Nike. However, beating earnings estimates has not necessarily taken the stock higher. Further, investors should not assume that the success LULU enjoyed with women's yoga pants will carry over into other clothing or product lines.Finally, as for its current valuation, it will probably follow the market in the near term. Although Lululemon will probably continue its long-term growth, I would still encourage patience with LULU stock.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Nike Inc is "very concerned" about a rape accusation against Brazilian soccer star Neymar, the world's largest sportswear maker said on Thursday, raising questions about its sponsorship of one of the sport's most famous players. Nike issued a statement a day after a woman said in an interview with Brazilian SBT TV that Neymar had raped her in a Paris hotel last month. Neymar denied the allegation in an Instagram post and has said the woman was trying to extort him.
“It cut my salary by about 2 1/2 times from what I was getting at Nike, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to take the job or not,” Smith said. “In my fourth interview at the White House, one of the women interviewing me said, ‘If you get this job, are you going to take it?’”
Sharing pay data is probably the easiest way to ensure every employee gets the same pay for the same job. But new research suggests that employers may claw back workers’ gains over time.
